I liked Cypress Moon Inn because it offers the best of several worlds. Situated next to a coastal reserve, it offers an avid distance runner like me a gentle, quiet, natural place to explore during a 2-hour run, complete with educational signs about the reserve, its flora and fauna. The breakfast tray is a great idea because it's awkward for me to schedule my early morning run around someone else's breakfast schedule, and I enjoyed eating on our room's deck/porch with its great view of the Sound. The attentive innkeepers made sure the fare was tasty and bountiful for this hungry runner who loves fruit and fresh-baked goodies. We used the Inn's kayaks (no extra charge) to scout the Sound side of the reserve. We also borrowed the Inn's bicycles (again, no extra charge) and biked through the reserve to find the Covered Bridge. And we floated on the Inn's tubes (no charge for this either) for hours on a late afternoon. Beaches are a short drive or within easy reach by bicycle on the seemingly endless running/bike path that wanders North to Corolla and South to Nags Head and beyond. I like sun on a beach vacation, and I also like to find relief in the shade of trees. This Inn offers both. The Inn is a relaxing spot, with friendly, considerate hosts and snazzy rooms. Thank you. We plan to come back.
